How do you pick a winner for Sunday’s NFC championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings? Seriously, how do you?
Both teams slumped down the stretch during the regular season. Both teams had first-round bye weeks. Both teams dominated in their first playoff games last week.
I made a sarcastic pick in Sunday’s editions of The Forum. I’ve been so bad at making picks during this postseason, going 2-6 in the first two rounds.
I firmly believe that the Indianapolis Colts will beat the New York Jets in the early game Sunday, but I can’t pick a Saints-Vikings winner. Feel free to make your picks below, but I think I’m going to skip this one.
But if you’re going to twist my arm, I’ll take the Saints. I don’t want to ruin a good thing for Vikings fans, who should know by now that me picking a team to win is the kiss of death for that team.
